Privacy for Everyone Workshop

“Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say.” – Edward Snowden

Privacy is your right to decide what to share and with whom you share it. This session is for anyone who wants to learn how to take charge of that right. We'll have a 20 minute presentation at the beginning, and the rest of the session will be open for questions, so please bring some! I will be showing examples, so feel free to also bring your smartphone or other devices and follow along.

The topics we will cover include:

  • Keeping data on your devices encrypted and safe
  • Secure messaging and calling with Signal
  • Secure internet browsing with Tor
  • Avoiding trackers online
  • Keeping your account safe with password managers and two-factor authentication
  • Maximizing your privacy on social media
  • Avoiding phishing attacks
